Farm dinner season is upon us. If you haven’t been you really must. What can one say about enjoying well prepared food sourced within feet of where you are eating. Sometimes outdoors, under the stars with people just like you, who want the ultimate farm to table experience.
Sure, it’s probably a mental thing, but the food really does taste fresher, the wine fuller, the air more crisp and the people…well happier.
A few things you need to keep in mind.
- Food preparation is a little different on the farm versus in a restaurant so the timing of things might be a little different- relax and enjoy.
- This is a farm so if you have allergies be prepared. Bring tissues and take your meds.
- You might want to bring bug spray, sun screen, sun glasses and a sweater.

Outstanding in the Field
If you don’t mind getting on the road for a few hours Outstanding in the Field Productions travels the country from spring to fall coordinating “roving culinary adventures”. They get local chefs and farmers together, and put on a dinner that is literally one long table in the field, beach, barn – under cover maybe, if absolutely necessary. Their mission is “to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it.”
The closest they will be to Buffalo this year (they were in St. Catherines last year) will be near Cleveland Aug. 15, and north of Pittsburgh Aug. 19. Approximately $200 per person.
For more information check out their website.
If your restaurant, organization or anyone you know is planning a farm dinner open to the public please let us know.
